Hi, I think this is a bug! Steps: Copy a file with a referenced graphics into another folder. The graphics path might be .\graphics\test.eps Open the first file. Then open the copied file. It will show the referenced graphics although it should complaint that the graphics file could not be found in .\graphics. Obviously FrameMaker calculates for the copied file the graphics path to the graphics file the first file.

That part of detecting the absolute file location is easy. After a program accessing a file (through all the relative references), determining the absolute location of a file is trivial in code. The truncation mentioned by Harro is troublesome though. Also, there is a path length limit in Windows - I thought it was 256 characters, but may be 64 characters? And this does not explain the network file name issue mentioned ... I'll look ...

After we sent the translated files back to the customer, they complained that all of the image paths in their files were changed. They were using relative paths that had lots of 'parent' references: ..\..\..\..\..\..\Graphics\etc When I received these files, I placed them in a directory 4 levels deep: F:\Customer\project\translation\incoming\blah.fm When I opened this file Frame asked for the location of external graphics. I selected 'Ignore all missing files' and saved the file as MIF. When I inspected the MIF, the graphics paths were truncated to ..\..\..\..\Graphics\etc So the path gets truncated to the number of levels available from the current location. When I store the file on an UNC path, it gets worse: \\Server\Customer\project\translation\incoming\blah.fm<file:///\\Server\Customer\project\translation\incoming\blah.fm> graphics paths: \\Graphics\etc<file:///\\Graphics\etc> In my opinion, this is a bug. When I select 'Ignore all missing files', Frame should leave the existing paths alone. Has anyone else seen the same behavior?
